The HSJ Telehealth summit will assess the progress made so far and the longer-term trajectory for the adoption of the technology in Britain and the NHS. Re-focused for 2013, the one-day conference will bring you practical, relevant debate, grounded in the present and tackle the challenges posed by the lack of a national overarching strategy and the many barriers that hinder adoption and development of services locally and nationally. Key issues examined include:
Achieving the impossible – real cost efficiencies from the outset
Introducing local services – what help and funding is out there?
Adoption of telehealth across the NHS – what must change?
Adding weight to the argument – the added value of big data
Patient empowerment and engagement – how technology is changing behaviour
Engaging commissioners and changing culture – breaking out of survival mode.
